Kalzip, the leading manufacturer of tailored metal building envelopes, was involved in the complex designs of two of the six arenas built at the Olympic Park – the Bolshoy Ice Dome and the Adler Skating Arena – as well as of the swan-neck construction of the Olympic flame on Medals Plaza.

The firm, which has a presence in several European countries, also delivered aluminium-profile panels for the iconic sporting event.
    
"The timely delivery of these complex and demanding construction projects in challenging conditions is pure testament to the commitment of our dedicated and highly experienced team," Kalzip managing director Jorg Schwall said in a statement on Friday.

All the Germany-headquartered Kalzip sheets were made using state-of-the-art mobile roll-forming technology.
